Morris Keesan asks, in discussion of the C Reference Manual:

   ............. but where "elsewhere" does it "imply" unsigned

Section 4 of the K&R CRM notes:

	(On the PDP-11, unsigned long quantities are not supported.)

Also, the problem he reports (V7 cc bounces "short int" because it's just
translating "short" to "int" everywhere) is present in the vanilla V7 cc
as well as the BBN one.
